I just followed Fetch's link too. I love the P&D plans and am currently on RW+13 of the 85m+ plan. My only issue is trying to find a tune up race on a Saturday this side of the pond πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ What I do is have an easier Saturday (ie the prescribed Sunday run) and add miles as needed after the race on the Sunday

Still finding the lowest mileage plan a struggle. I've decided to hit the key workouts and reduce or drop the general and recovery mileage if needs be. Even with the drop in mileage I know if I can keep the consistent mileage going I'll be in good shape for October.

Got something to say?
